securing the money
trail in Washington?
Our national sovereignty is of utmost importance, so Jobbik believes that Hungarian political forces must all do their best to preserve it - stated Jobbik's Márton Gyöngyösi, referring to the Washington visit of the Prime Minister candidate of the leftist coalition. Jobbik's deputy faction leader reminded that his party had already submitted several motions and proposals to prevent foreign influence.
In two months' time, people will decide on the composition of Hungary's legislative body, the greatest symbol and guardian of our national sovereignty. This sovereignty is violated if a country's elections are influenced by foreign interests - said Márton Gyöngyösi in his press conference on Saturday. As Jobbik's deputy faction leader mentioned, there are several known attempts to that effect all over the world, so Jobbik made proposals to prevent foreign influence.
The politician reminded that his patriotic party had submitted motions to make the operation of Non-governmental organizations transparent. These NGOs are able to influence the Hungarian political sphere through their foreign sponsors and supporters. Gyöngyösi said that this would hardly be a unique measure, since Russia and Israel also regulate the operation of NGOs, obliging them to disclose certain data.
Gyöngyösi reminded the media representatives that Jobbik had already submitted a bill to reveal the dual citizenship of any members of the Hungarian Parliament, government and public administration, since they may reasonably be dedicated to foreign interests. The same applies to people working as informants of the Communist and Socialist regimes: Jobbik fights for publishing the lists of informants, since the past of these former agents poses a risk of blackmail. Jobbik's politician warned citizens to be alert as all parliamentary parties, except for Jobbik, have shown worrying signs in their operation.
He reminded the media representatives of Ferenc Gyurcsány's statement in which the former Prime Minister had referred to Socialist monies of unclear origin. We don't know why Socialist party president Attila Mesterházy went to Washington: to receive his orders or to secure the money trail? The same applies to Gordon Bajnai: for two years, he was paving the way in the US for his Patriotism and Progress Foundation, which was funded by millions of dollars by the Center for American Progress, an organization related to the American Democratic Party. We can also remember the statement made by Charles Gati, another Bajnai supporter: "there are democratic, or, if that is impossible, other kind of ways to remove the Hungarian government if it opposes western expectations". Another memorable event was when EU Commissioner Viviane Reding, who was allegedly keeping contact with Gordon Bajnai, said at last year's meeting of the Bilderberg Group that they needed to do whatever it took to question the legitimacy of the Y2014 elections in Hungary.
Márton Gyöngyösi also pointed out that the leftist-liberal coalition was not the only organization with such sponsors. LMP's campaign was funded by American businessman Richard Field in 2010, but we don't know if he would support this dwarf party again or give his money this time to Dialog for Hungary, which joined Gordon Bajnai first, and then the Socialists and Gyurcsány as well.
It is worth looking at Fidesz as well - warned Jobbik's politician: the WikiLeaks documents revealed the secret meetings in the American Embassy and, as Gyöngyösi put it, Fidesz had its own Ron Werber: they were coached by American advisor George Birnbaum as well as Arthur Finkelstein, who also happened to be a chief advisor to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanjahu.
Fidesz seems to have outsourced the demonstrations for national sovereignty to the Peace March movement - said Márton Gyöngyösi -, which is nothing but hypocrisy. Jobbik says that the phenomena described above should be taken more seriously as the Y2014 elections are approaching, so the patriotic party calls upon all political forces to protect national sovereignty. In response to a journalist's comment that Mesterházy did not want foreign observers at the elections, Gyöngyösi said that the lack of such observers may be a pretext for questioning the legitimacy of the elections. However, foreign election observers have a very limited mandate, so Jobbik does not expect them to guarantee fair elections on their own.
